Message from the Dean

From Christopher C. Morphew, Dean

Today, it is clearer than ever that the challenges facing our schools and communities will require deep, empirically informed change. At the Johns Hopkins School of Education, we are committed to driving that change. As part of America’s first research university, we have helped schools, districts, and states improve their educational policies and practices since 1909.

We are one of the nation’s most trusted knowledge sources on education because we are consistently focused on solutions and driven by evidence: testing, analyzing, and sharing education research, practices, and policies that really work. We prepare leaders for today’s diverse educational contexts and create powerful tools to tackle education’s defining issues as we address the social determinants of education, support diverse learners, and advance equity and social justice.

On behalf of our community, thank you for your own commitment to that effort—and for your interest in the Johns Hopkins School of Education.
